Sounds very familiar to me. The old advice ; try to be with a male friend
when visiting a cash machine as the assailants are nearby watching. Better
off without a handbag but if you need one, no credit cards inside, only a bit of
cash, keep the rest of the cash safely upon your person (Police Jargon). Think
about a noise alarm, they are a small aerosol can or Mace spray if it is allowed
in Turkey. Get one anyway use it, then throw it, say a passerby did it. It's
war out there.

An elderly lady opened her door and a 15 year old lad stabbed her in the neck, it
happened the other night - he has been caught, probably slapped wrists.

Let us hope the local Constabulary do a Pro-Active operation to catch them.

Do not let it affect your life just be very aware of your surroundings.

I have loads of info on awareness and safety as that was part of my Police
job before I finished.

Its absolutely bloody disgraceful, it really is. There were a couple of incidents like this last winter also :-(

Reading the voices article, one of the "victims" had money withdrawn from her bank account - so how did they get the pin number? not being cynical or anything but info supplied by boyfriend perhaps?

Are the machines being cloned like over here ? They put a false front on so
that when your card is put into the slot it gets read along with your pin.

But you could be correct you non believer you.

Thats really shocking news. Back in the early 1990's wshen I worked in Benalmadena in Costa Del Sol, Spain I was forever at the police station with customers who had been robbed or mugged. I hope the police are vigilant and stop this happening as I would hate Turkey to turn into Spain.
